The Black Drongo (Dicrurus macrocercus) is a wholly black bird with a distinctive forked tail. Feeding on insects, it is common in open agricultural areas and light forest throughout its range, perching conspicuously on a bare perch or along power or telephone lines. The species is famous for its aggressive behavior towards much larger birds, such as crows, never hesitating to dive-bomb any birds of prey that invade its territory. The informal name of King Crow is based on this behavior.
